The Audio Note (UK) TOMEI Kensei Stereo Power Amplifier is a Pure Class A Singled Ended valve amplifier that uses the highly regarded 211 triode valve, producing a level of performance that is radically superior to the vast majority of current designs.
Sharing the circuit design found in the legendary ONGAKU Kensei and JINRO Shochu amplifiers, the TOMEI Kensei bridges the gap between them. Featuring a combination of copper primary and silver secondary windings for the transformers, its performance is both unique and beguiling.
Level 4 components are used throughout, including Audio Note (UK)™ Tantalum resistors and Foil Capacitors and in-house designed and manufactured copper/silver wired output transformers.
It has been specifically engineered for sonic performance rather than technical specification, and fulfils all Audio Note (UK) Level 4 criteria: –
